About the course

Discover tools, techniques and tips for adapting and responding to the changing world of work, current working practices and emerging expectations of the workforce.

There’s an increasing need for organisations to respond and adapt to globalisation; as well as technology, virtual working and competition, with an emphasis on more flexible working practices, partnerships and networks. The Organisation Development for HR Leaders course gives you an opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills to use OD interventions to diagnose, plan, change and develop your organisation for sustainable performance.

By the end of this course, you’ll understand the relationship between strategic HR, HR business partners and OD practitioners, and the value each contributes to your organisation. The interactive group discussions and exercises will help you to assess your own organisation’s implementation of strategic HR and OD. You’ll also recognise, and influence, underlying dynamics and strategic decisions and activities, and respond to chaotic and complex situations.
